Posting announcements via the HR platform

The Announcements feature on the company feed allows you to post a public message to either a team or the whole organisation informing them of the latest news. You can also use this feature to comment on an announcement made by yourself or another admin, and if you made the comment, delete this information if needed.

Warning

Please note that your posts, shoutouts, and company feed announcements do not auto-save during the creation process, and you will need to re-type your post or announcement if you quit this page without posting your message.

  5. In the text box type in the desired announcement.

    Helpful Tip

    Typing @ into the text field, followed by an employee's name, will tag that employee in the announcement. Announcements do not have a limit on the number of employee tags, so there is no limit to how many employees it can include.

    Not sure what to write? If you are on our Platnium HR Plan you can type a few points in, then click   to have our AI help you generate a draft message. You will be able to refine the draft as you need before submitting. 

  6. Click the Paperclip button to add an attachment to the announcement.

    Important

    The platform only allows you to attach images (.jpeg, .png, and .gif) and documents (.pdf) to an announcement. However, you can only attach images and documents to an announcement if you are on our Premium and Platinum plans.

  7. Click the Share With drop-down and select either:
    • Everyone: Every employee in your organisation will receive the announcement.
    • Teams: Only the teams selected in the drop-down box will receive the announcement.

    Important

    The option to select teams is only available on our premium and platinum plans. You can paste links into your post, however they will only be clickable if you make the announcement via the website.
